The fundamentally foundational epicenter of Borderline Personality Disorder is abandonment. This abandonment experience can be actual or perceived. Abandonment that is perceived is still very real to the person perceiving it. Many people are unaware of the scope and nature of the wide and encompassing spectrum of all that abandonment is. Abandonment can be very obvious or very subtle. Many people with BPD dissociate from what are traumatic and overwhelming feels of abandonment. This means that what Author, Life Coach, BPD/Mental Health and Self Improvement Coach, A.J. Mahari, refers to as the core wound of abandonment in Borderline Personality Disorder is one that continues to cause a disconnect from identity of the lost self and continues to be the seat of rage in BPD and shame in those with Borderline Personality Disorder.
It is from the heart of this abandonment trauma that people with Borderline Personality Disorder essentially block the very awareness that they need to realize in order to get on and stay on the road to recovery. Not everyone with BPD expresses this rage outwardly, many withdraw and distance from those they have been close with.
Loved ones are very much also effected by the many ways that people with BPD are not able to maintain healthy relationships. Loved ones will also benefit from learning more about abandonment in BPD and how it effects them.
